Sorry, Colombia

On July 2, 2007, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charles Rangel, and Ways and Means Trade Subcommittee Chairman Sander Levin issued a statement on Democrat trade policy rejecting a free trade agreement with our closest ally in Latin America, Colombia. According to them, it cannot be approved until “concrete evidence of sustained results on the ground in Colombia” regarding issues such as violence and corruption have been shown.

Just be sure you spell “Colombia” better than I did. Heh™

Man blames health drink for unwanted erection

NEW YORK – A man has sued the maker of the health drink Boost Plus, claiming the vitamin-enriched beverage gave him an erection that would not subside and caused him to be hospitalized.

The lawsuit filed by Christopher Woods of New York said he bought the nutrition beverage made by the pharmaceutical company Novartis AG at a drugstore on June 5, 2004, and drank it.

Woods’ court papers say he woke up the next morning “with an erection that would not subside” and sought treatment that day for the condition, called severe priapism.

So, Christopher Woods wake up with some morning wood, and blames it on a protein drink? 

Hard to believe?

This story is just begging for some double entendre…

Hold On

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew

To serve your turn long after they are gone,

And so hold on when there is nothing in you

Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

Kipling, If

Congress is back from its Holiday recess, and the majority party is poised to renew their efforts to impose the Reid Doctrine of pre-emptive surrender, just as General Petraeus is reporting real progress in Iraq.

There is a total disconnect between what is being said about the war by the democrats and their allies in the elite press on the one hand, and reports from Iraq from the MNF, as well as from embedded reporters and bloggers such as Michael Yon.

The differences are stark. Most troubling to me is the fact that so many on the political left seem to view this as just another political battle, another argument over the arrangement of the living room furniture, oblivious to the fact that the house is in danger of burning down.

The war against the islamists is the defining issue of our time. The majority party has no plan to win. As timid as the republican party has been of late, it is important that our representatives hear support from the base as loudly and clearly as they heard the opponents of the amnesty bill.

My hope is that talk radio and the major conservative blogs speak clearly and persuasively and expose the liberal rhetoric for the vacuity that it represents.

Hold On.
